Oyo State governor Engr. Seyi Makinde has spoken after he was tested positive to dreaded Coronavirus also known as COVID-19 ravaging the state.
The governor, while speaking via a phone-in interview with an Ibadan-based private radio station on Tuesday morning, said he has asked those in contact with him to go into isolation and if showed any symptoms should go for test.
While speaking on how he tested positive to Coronavirus, Makinde said: “The medical team came to my house where I was isolated on Saturday and the result was brought to me on Monday.”
“The truth is that, all governors attended the executive council meeting almost a week ago but I can’t really say that is where I contracted the virus.”
“I haven’t still having any symptoms. My temperature is 13.5℅. And that’s why I implore people to stay at home because career who’s not showing symptoms can infect others.”
“I want to say that COVID-19 is real, when I say stay at home, it is important to follow the instructions. I don’t want people to doubt this government.”
“My statement in the video circulating around where I said during Oyo PDP rally that Coronavirus is in APC was a metaphorical statement,” the governor stated.
